Biography

The word mokkadi loosely translated means unclean. To Romanian Gypsies, mokkadi is more about taboo, rules, rituals and spells to protect themselves against evil, filth and the ills of the world. Music and the industry surrounding it, is full of doubt, jealousy, addictions, anger, lies, manipulations and placing importance on the image of the artist rather than the music that flows out of them.
Mokkadi transcends all that.

To listen is to know.
Mokkadi was born in January of 2003 and from the beginning Sean Ores and Max Monzon had one thing in mind, to create a serious and dedicated band. The first 2 years the band devoted themselves to finding exposure. They played shows mainly in the Chicago metro area such as: Champs (where the rock band Disturbed was discovered), O'Malley's, Subterranean, Elbow Room, Night Caps, US Beer Company and several more. Mokkadi has also performed at several local radio station events, and also has had airplay for two of their songs, Lies and Unreal on stations Q101 and 94.7. In July 2005, Mokkadi was chosen to play at the Mobfest showcase, which gave them their first opportunity to reach many record labels including Atlantic and Columbia. In October of the same year the band made a connection with an independent record label called Grimmyville, a recording studio that mainly features rap and r&b artists, they are the first rock band to work there. The demo is being mixed and arranged by a legend in the recording industry, Rick Clifford, the former chief engineer of Death Row Records, and two time Grammy Award winner. Clifford has formerly worked with 2Pac, Snoop Dog, Donna Summers and the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Lyrics

did u ever

Written By: max monzon(mokkadi)

let me heal from this pain
and find some cure for what's inside
i just want to clean my life
to get ready
walk into a new path
let me breathe so deep like the air
going straight for dignity
concentrate in a new beginning
and don't feel frustrated for what i did

did you ever fall down
until you touch the ground
dropping like a rock
without a hand to grab you on

but i haven't seen the signs
why it took me too much to be out
but i'll be ready to say goodbye
maybe if i find myself
today i will start again
i feel my blood running into my veins
makes me feel alive
taken me out from my past

again

Written By: max monzon(mokkadi)

close you get to close around me
you will try to hurt me
now you move so fast
it feels so strange

the kind of look you bring into your eyes
the way you walk around my feet
the way you hide inocense
hiding like a tiger ready to strike

i have seen this all my life
so bring it on,again

but everything changed for a reason
i don't know why
i got the solution
i need no reason to put you away from my life

everything changed for a reason
and i don't know why
everything happens for a reason
and i don't know why
